Court of Appeal upholds Fayose’s election victory

The Court of Appeal, Abuja Division Monday upheld the victory of Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state in the June 21, 2014 governorship election.

The court, however, dismissed the appeal brought by the All Progressives Congress (APC) challenging the decision of the Election Petition Tribunal.

The tribunal had on December 19, 2014 upheld Fayose’s election.

Not satisfied, APC had approached the appellate court to challenge the decision of the tribunal.

In its appeal, APC submitted that the Tribunal erred when it dismissed the ground challenging the forgery of certificate by Fayose.

The appellants also challenged the decision of the Tribunal, which struck out Chief of Army Staff and Nigerian Army as parties in the petition. [Newtelegraph]
